Obama grasps for climate legacy as second-term agenda crumbles
The Hill ^ | November 8, 2013 | Ben German

Posted on 11/08/2013 3:01:27 PM PST by Biggirl

President Obama has a chance to craft a second-term legacy on climate change even as the rest of his agenda runs aground in Congress.

Gun control legislation is dead; immigration reform is on life support; and reaching a fiscal deal with Republicans appears to be a long shot.

Seems to me that he’s throwing everything out there to save his legacy. Climate, Immigration, gay rights, minimum wage, infrastructure...

Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....

...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...

....to increase it's magnetic field....

and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.

The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

President Cloward-Piven's agenda is not crumbling. Everything is going according to plan. The only way Obamacare can possibly work is if all existing plans get cancelled.

We are well on our way.

He's a cunning SOB. Most queers are.

Agree with the article, Obama’s legecy is crumbling in all directions, no doubt.

With the fascist takeover of healthcare underway, other horizons await this Hitleresque regime, and climate legislation opens the door to taking over energy production, exploration and distribution. And just like the mandates of Obamacare are paid for by by narrowing down the market, raising the prices, and forcing people to buy it, we will be forced to accept a narrow market of energy at extreme prices, and we will be forced to pay for it. The American economy is too big and complicated for central control, so the government will become the controlling partner of every critical business through legislation and mandates, and agencies will become the police that force us to comply. Healthcare, energy, banking (which is damn near there), transportation and manufacturing will line up like dominoes for the federal government to takeover. Welcome to Nazi America.

I agree, why would he or his administration give a flip about what the American people think about them. He is completely isolated from us, he’ll just throw another hollywood gala event or invite a couple of sports teams to the hut if a little depression seeps in.

Ubama is a foreign agent. He didn't get into Harvard Law School on academic credentials. He didn't even get into Harvard on affirmative action. He got into Harvard because a Saudi Arabian billionaire sponsored him.

Whether or not he was born in Hawaii, he spent his formative years in Indonesia as a Moslem, nurtured by an America-hating mother and later his America-hating grandparents.

He's here to give us our comeuppance by making us give up the form of government that had immigrants flocking here by the billions and forcing us to take up the form of government they were fleeing.

Mission accomplished.

The only problem w the ‘he’s doing all this on purpose’ theory is that he’s a Malignant Narcissist. MNs hate above all else to be laughed at. A close second, closely related, is to appear stupid. Right now Obama looks incredibly incompetent & has become a laughingstock. The idea that he wd willingly become so just to promote Marxism, etc., doesn’t fly w the nature of Malignant Narcissism. In Obama’s world, everything subordinates to him. He comes first. Everything else is a distant second.

Anyone who doubts Obama’s priorities just has never spent any real time w a MN. They are incapable of sacrificing themselves for a cause larger than themselves. In their world, there is no cause larger than themselves. Obama believes he can achieve his political goals while looking suave, brilliant & amazingly competent. Right now he’s furious & frustrated about being ‘burned’ by lesser individuals whose incompetence has cast him in a bad light. This won’t play well for him. He needs adulation more than the average person needs air. It will be interesting to see where he goes from here.

You forget that Ubama is merely a puppet.

It doesn't matter how narcissistic he is, he has people to answer to.

Unfortunately, we are not among them.

You wd have to have dealt w a true MN, in close proximity, to know what I’m talking about. It’s a serious personality disorder. It supersedes all else in the life of the person who has it. Until you’ve experienced an MN firsthand, you just have no idea how pervasive a psychopathy it is. I’ll leave it at that.

Even if the premise of global warming were true, we are already too broke to do anything about it.

Luckily, it is false. Geology should be a required course in HS and University. Then all these little mush brained college grads could find out the glaciers melted in ancient times; the seas covered the land in ancient times and then receded; the earth had both global warming and global cold in cycles.

Just what everyone whose health premiums have increased needs. When he closes down all of the power plants he wants to close, our electric and gas bills are going to skyrocket. (His own words.)

Yet the Drudgereport tells it different.

Breaking News: The Won is not running for reelection.

His legacy is the destruction of the United States of America and his ascendancy to the pinnacle of the New World Order government that will rise in its place.

It's been in the cards since at least George Herbert Walker Bush, who introduced us to the phrase New World Order and told us to get used to it.

The Republicrats are all on the same team... and it ain't our team.

He's doing exactly what his bankster masters want him to do - foment division and keep the white middle class so off balance with ObamaCare and a looming race war that they have no time to get outraged over things like MF Global.

Obama talks about economic and social justice in such a way as to make his constituents think white small business owners are the greatest impediment to achieving it. This is not a mistake - it's a strategy. And it doesn't come from Obama's Communist advisors.

What people like Obama and Blumenthal won't ever grasp is that the path to practical sustainable energy starts with a smokestack rather than a rule book. The environment that will give rise to the next energy source is an expanding, unfettered economy where private research and development is competitive, generously funded and consumer driven.
